From Church Hill Crime Watch:
Richmond Police detectives need the public’s help to identify the suspects an armed robbery of the Hill Café and its patrons.
At approximately 12:30 a.m., officers responded to the 2800 block of E. Broad St. for a robbery that had just happened. Once on scene, the victims told police two male suspects walked into the business armed and demanded money property. Soon after, the suspects fled the business. The suspects were last seen running towards Marshall St., wearing dark hoodies and pants. Personal property was found at N. 21st St and E. Clay, so direction of travel appears to be westward and north.
